Community Board 6 is inviting the public to submit the names and biographies of community-minded youths to be considered for nomination to the New York Yankee Community Council Youth Leadership Corp--an annual award doled out by the Yankees to five young people in the Bronx who have volunteered their time to civic activities and worked to make their communities better.
Awardees will receive a $750 stipend. To be considered for nomination by CB6, the young person must meet the following criteria:
- Live in the boundaries of Community Board #6, which encompasses Bathgate, Belmont, Bronx Park South, East Tremont, Crotona Park North and West Farms
- Be no older than 18
- Have a history of involvement in civic activities and helping to improve their community
- Willing to commit to working with Bronx CB6 in the preparation of its June anti-violence talent show
